Abstract:

Like other hermeneutic objects in Proust's novel, the body has a rich but equivocal potential as a signifier, both inviting and resisting interpretation. Setting out from the original transparency of the maternal body in Combray, the hero's successive misreadings of bodies from an important part of his extended subjection to illusion.

This enthrallment to error will not dissipate until the final revelations of Le Temps retrouve, where, on the threshold of discovering his artistic vocation, bodies acquire a new transparency for the hero, stripped of the myth-making power characterized their earlier status in the novel.
